A review of data collected for polymer-based restorative materials in the period 2005-2011. -

Forty-two randomly picked materials with some of the shades available were examined for depth of cure, flexural strength, water sorption and water solubility, and shade and color stability.

Evaluation of two matrix materials intended for fiber-reinforced polymers -

Abstract: Two matrix resins for fiber composites that remain in a fluid state during storage and handling before polymerization were evaluated. The resin mixtures, based on methyl methacrylate (MMA), were produced with two different cross-linking agent systems: 1,4-butanediol dimethacrylate and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate or diethylene glycol dimethacrylate. Water sorption, water solubility, water uptake and residual […]

Water sorption and solubility of dental composites and identification of monomers released in an aqueous environment. -

The resin composition influences the water sorption and solubility behaviour of composite resin materials. The HPLC analysis of eluted components revealed that triethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) was the main monomer released. Maximal monomer concentration in the eluate was observed after 7 days.

Some properties of a denture acrylic coating -

The water sorption, solubility, hardness, and color stability of thin specimens of auto-polymerized and heat-polymerized denture base polymers with and without a UV light-polymerized coating material were investigated
